#1913378 GM's recommendation on hitting

Posted by Finnish Wing on 10 March 2010 - 06:36 PM

I'm not aware of blindside hits to the head involving Fleming. I know about the buttend and the stick swinging though. Please elaborate.

I do not advocate players playing the game without helmets - I suspect bare heads hitting the ice or being hit by pucks or fists were the primary cause of most long term brain dammage to hockey players, not checks to the head. Again though, I am in favor of a rule calling out headhunting for what it is, unsportsmanlike and dirty.

I don't. A guy like Boogaard for example can just cheap shot who ever he wants, because he usually don't have to be "afraid" figthing. And I don't think that's an excuse.

Cheap shots should always be punished with suspensions. This is ice-hockey, not last man standing wrestling or something like that. The refs and the league is there to take care of the punishments. No team should be having to do that themselves. No team should be having to whitstand cheap shots just because they don't have a guy who takes care that "justice" happens.

#1913297 No suspension for Cooke

Glad you can manage to read minds of people.

What do I want for lunch while you are at it?

That said, I just miss the days where both players in this situation had accountability.

Cooke has the accountability that if he hits a star player, he will have to answer the bell.
And if the star player leaves himself vulnerable with a player like Cooke on the ice, that's his issue...

So basically you're saying that it's OK that you can use your 4th line goon to "remove" some other team's (division rival for example) star player for let's say rest of the season for example. AND your goon would be away even less time. Just taking a beating after the dirty hit is nowhere near enough of a punishment.

#1913002 Why is there so much love for Filppula on this board?

HE DOES IT AGAIN! Bravo. Maybe I'm bringing those old arguments up because you keep ignoring them, because you can't admit being wrong. You say Filppula is overpaid right now, but you don't have anything to prove that argument.

I prove that he's not overpaid by comparing him to other players' cap hit of similiar ppg. The point remains the same. If you look only at the points, then Franzen with 7 points earning 4mill is overpaid. If you look at the PPG - AS YOU SHOULD - you'll see that both of them are good deals.

You don't really have anything to back up your own arguments. Yet you keep ignoring what other people say. What a joke.

We should have never gotten rid of Ville Leino. The guy had Captain written all over him.


: D

Blame Franzen. I though we decided between him and Hossa, not between Flip and Hossa. Franzen has 5 goals this season, and as RedWingsAbner says: "Projections don't matter s***!". So blame Franzen.

Says the guy who has now upped this thread 3 times in a desperate attempt to call out a person who he will most likely never meet or have any effect on his life...

Eva was arrogant, but it is af****** forum. Let it go. Cool points online does not get you cool points in the real world.

Who cares about the real world? Real world is overatted, a joke. Internet is where it all happens nowadays.

#1911605 Official Poll: Filppula at 3 Mil. or Hossa at 5.4 + return for Filppul

Posted by Finnish Wing on 08 March 2010 - 06:39 PM

Filppula has Selke potential and he will easily be better than Hossa in couple of years.

#1911079 Another goalie thread...

Posted by Finnish Wing on 07 March 2010 - 09:10 PM

According to LGW, 90% of the players in the NHL are bad. You aren't even considered good unless you can score 40+ goals and be a selke winner

Even if you would score 40+ goals you could still be accused of murdering and even if you would win that Selke you would still be just another Soft Euro™.

QUOTE (Electrophile @ February 1, 2010 - 11:37PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
If you don't win the game, you don't get any points. It doesn't matter to me if it was a regulation loss or an OT loss. Teams should only be rewarded for winning their games. You don't see this in any other sport - can you imagine if the MLB did something like this? "Oh it's okay if you lose in extras, we'll give you a win in the standings just for hanging in there for 9 innings."

1 point for an OT loss is the hockey equivalent of a mercy f*ck. It's telling teams "Hey, don't worry about winning. Just get it to OT and we'll throw you a bone."
So teams who basically just lose 15-0 playing lazy and sucking deserve the same amount of points than teams who battle hard and get to the OT.

Baseball, as a game is entirely different, than hockey. I mean the whole scoring thing and how the game works. Soccer is much more like hockey, and in soccer you get more points for tie than loss. But they're Europeans, so they probably don't know anything though...
